Re: Red Bezel Tridents

I have to say, that somewhere on the Forum someone else agrees with me. Please step forward. White hands on a White dial invariably don’t work. Photos yes, but real world no. Now you can bet your life that in the next few posts, someone will show a picture disproving this theory. But as ever, it’s ...

Re: Tribus Watches

Chris is really pushing the limits with the "My Dog Sighs Limited Edition". No pictures of the watch, no prices, sizes alternately described as 36 and 41mm... Is this what it means in 2020 to be disruptive in the watch industry? Selling watches unseen? They are not for sale yet as there are none to...

Re: What once was lost...

There is alot to like in that watch! Great size, 24 hour hand, and a pointer date with a flightmaster style hand. Certainly a unique Speedy. Wear it with pride, and never let it go!

Re: Trident Chronograph Pro question- unscrewed pusher moisture resistance

I can't see how this could be an issue. If it was it would affect every watch ever made that incorporates a pusher, and the internet would be flooded (pardon the pun) with reports of watches failing in tropical climates on a daily basis. The fact that we don't see constant posts in that regard sugge...

Re: Red Bezel Tridents

My goal is to get a red bezel Trident...I've seen the MK2 & MK3, just curious if CW made a red bezel MK1. The Mk1's I've seen have the hour dot indicators, which mimic the Rolex and I like how they look. I just searched in ebay and there is an MK2 for sale, but prefer one that has all the documenta...

Re: R is for ROLEX (a book for dads)

C is for Christopher Ward?
F is for Farer?
G is for Glashutte Original? Or Grand Seiko?
H is for Hublot? I hope not, but I can't think of another H right now.

Re: C7 Apex Ltd Edition...advice.

Number 00 of 50 sounds like it's a limited edition of 51? Or it's the prototype? I believe 00 would be a pre-production/prototype case. OP, from your story I see no reason not too have the watch fixed and returned. Watches are complex mechanical devices, and sometimes they do break. It happens with...

Re: New Rolex Oyster Perpetual Models - in bright colours...

The new OP colours are horrible. They look like $500 microbrand dials. And, like Stefs, I mourn the loss of the 3-6-9 dialed OP 36.

Re: C65 Super Compressor

Recreational no compression dives limits are 40m but would you dive with a watch rated to 50m or 100m. I'm guessing you missed the posts about the Fifty Fathoms, Zodiac and Submariner all being 100m (technically 91m for the Blancpain) dive watches? Yes, I would happily dive with a 100m watch, and t...

Re: How often do you “check” your watch?

I set mine to the minute when I put it on. If it's accurate enough that I don't notice the inaccuracy, then it's good enough. I do check my watches randomly from time to time. That's about it.

Re: C65 Super Compressor

We went off track!!! well at least from my original question. So, 150m on a super compressor. II made my statement based on most of the "compressor style" watches I have seen in the recent past. Most have at least a 300m rating and are tanks. So after some comments made here, I decided to do some r...

Re: CW strap greater selection menu option?

I love this idea, but it would definitely be easier to achieve in the showroom than online. When i visited JS Watch in Reykjavik, they did exactly this. Pick your watch, and they bring out the strap book with all straps of the corresponding size. Top row is included at the posted price. Second row i...
